Colors ruled fall/winter 2013 runways, from classic primary hues like red and blue to pretty pastels like lavender (Not surprised since we saw so many black & white this spring/summer). Today’s featured ladies rocked this color trend in two totally different ways:
Colors, gingham, lace, cut-outs are all in one outfit? Sounds busy, but Olivia Palermo nailed it by keeping the color palette simple. This outfit (above left) is trendy and glamorous, great for the coming holiday parties.
Natalia Vodianova’s take (above right) on red blazer followed the classic model’s off-duty way: teaming it with perfect fit skinny jeans, sexy black pumps and a classic quilted bag. Mixing one trend with our oldies and goodies is always a smart way to look chic & current without trying too hard.
今年春夏看了那么多黑白色，一定渴望来点色彩吧。这个秋冬明亮的饱和色比如经典的正红色、宝蓝色和柔和的马卡龙色正流行，从 Olivia Palermo 和超模 Natalia Vodianova的这两个look中学学怎么搭配吧。

My fondness for anything gingham was literally revived when I spotted this photo from Vogue. Since Gustav III first created gingham as a style for interiors back to 18th century, this simple, minimalist print that combined Rococo with Neo-Classicism never goes out of style. Today, I featured two of my current favorite looks incorporated gingham, hope they inspire you to update yours.
Unlike the born-with-it modern vibe of stripes, gingham naturally has a retro, country flair. To make it fresh, style it with your favorite basic staples, be it skinny jeans, leather leggings, black cashmere sweater or sharp blazer, then spice up the whole look with trendy accessories, like the white cut-out pump and lace-up Oxford on today’s featured stars, both very of-the-moment.
These two looks are easy to adopt and very versatile: add a well-tailored jacket to SJP’s outfit, or change Olivia Palermo’s Oxford to a classic black pump, then add a structured tote, you can easily transform these two casual chic looks to polished, office-ready outfits.
